The beginning of the trail is very basic and does not require much skill. As you progress toward the hill you can either go left and hike to the top of the hill or right and swing around the base of the hill. I prefer to climb to the top of the hill because the views are great especially as the sun is setting. Wear sun protection if you are hiking on a sunny day, this is a quick hike but there is little shade. Also, be aware of snakes, I hike this trail often and recently saw 2 baby rattlesnakes in different areas of the trail. Watch your step!

Great trail, kid-friendly (NOT stroller friendly). Lots of places to stop and rest on benches under the oaks if you want to. One of my favorite local trails, worth the visit.

Fortune favors the early bird. Beautiful spring landscapes. Not as many wildflowers in March as one might expect--but really lovely old oak trees and wildlife. Sun exposure is serious, so wear a good hat and avoid midday walks if you're sensitive to direct sunlight. Rejoice in some splendid shaded sections. On the easier side in terms of difficulty, but moderate if you take the long outter routes.

I would have give a 5 except portable potties were beyond bad, and I was hiking with my twin 5 year olds

Hiked to Monument Hill with cub scouts, nice trail gorgeous views and just enough in the 3 mile round trip for a group ages 6-10.

Good view but not much biking

The trail seemed pretty washed out. A lot of climbing over rocks and boulders and I never made it to the falls. A lot of pools and water though.

Climbing over rocks most of the time and couldn't seem to find the falls. The people ahead of us couldn't find the falls as well. Nats in my face the entire time.
